Derpitude: ‘Real journalists’ fall for vile Michelle Malkin parody account

http://twitter.com/#!/michellemalkin/status/251754875988344832

A pitiful Michelle Malkin parody account has apparently been floating around Twitter since August of last year. Most likely, its sheer lame-itude is what’s kept it under the radar until today, when it suddenly caught the attention of the illustrious Band of Merry Real Journalists made up of such luminaries as Keith Olbermann, Ana Marie Cox, and David Frum.

There's a Michelle Malkin parody account? With even more parody than the real one? And nobody's sent me the handle? #Harumph

— Keith Olbermann (@KeithOlbermann) September 28, 2012

Behold the kinds of tweets that captivated this trio of tools:

@KeithOlbermann Keith, don't get my blood pressure up. It's Friday. I have an entire weekend of nail-biting paranoia to plan for. Jesus.

(The parody account replaced the letter “L” in Michelle’s name with capital “I.”)

Ana Marie Cox, who has a history of opening her mouth about things she hasn’t properly read, gladly retweeted a fake tweet:

RT @MicheIleMaIkin: Libs are using Nickleodeon and Teenage Mutant Liberal Turtles to implant socialism. // Funny because it's true!

— Ana Marie Cox (@anamariecox) September 28, 2012

Mocking Michelle Malkin’s drawing attention to pig Jason Biggs is totally hilarious, see?

Doltish bigot David Frum fell for the same tweet as Cox:

RT @MicheIleMaIkin: Libs are using Nickleodeon and Teenage Mutant Liberal Turtles to implant socialism. Turtles spew hatred and intolerance

— David Frum (@davidfrum) September 28, 2012

One would think that even vapid troglodytes like Cox and Frum would’ve at least been able to put their combined seven brain cells together and figure out that the real Michelle Malkin would never put out anything resembling the garbage in the parody tweets. Common sense eluded them, however. Malkin was disgusted, and she rightly gave them the business:

And @anamariecox @keitholbermann @davidfrum all fell for the fake account and spread the slander against me.

— Michelle Malkin (@michellemalkin) September 28, 2012

Remember, folks. They are #realjournalists and I'm #justablogger

— Michelle Malkin (@michellemalkin) September 28, 2012

And none of them will apologize.

— Michelle Malkin (@michellemalkin) September 28, 2012

And of course no apology from @davidfrum @keitholbermann @anamariecox #realjournalists

— Michelle Malkin (@michellemalkin) September 28, 2012

After learning that the parody account was, in fact, a parody account, Cox continued to make an idiot of herself:

So @michellemalkin may be a fake account (?) but the opinions expressed are, well, I guess we could call them "real"? Truthy at least.

— Ana Marie Cox (@anamariecox) September 28, 2012

Lesson: After Akin, flag-gate, birtherism, Seamus, 47%, I am prepared to believe all kind of crazy shit that conservatives might say.

— Ana Marie Cox (@anamariecox) September 28, 2012

She finally did apologize, but not without slickly qualifying it:

@michellemalkin I'm sorry RT'd without disclaimer that parody account Tweet. You deserve to have your views represented accurately.

— Ana Marie Cox (@anamariecox) September 28, 2012

@michellemalkin I mean, I do find some of your views mockable but you should only be mocked for the ones that are actually yours. I'm sorry.

— Ana Marie Cox (@anamariecox) September 28, 2012

Frum, however, didn’t even attempt a half-hearted fauxpology:

My mistake, that was a parody account. I can't think why I was fooled!

— David Frum (@davidfrum) September 28, 2012

Translation: Michelle Malkin didn’t actually tweet that stuff, but, like, she totally would have, because racist and meanypants and stuff!

Keith Olbermann, who thought the parody account was the bee’s knees, felt that he was the victim in all this, and he demanded that Malkin apologize:

I retweeted nothing from this fake account. You owe me an apology. You are not adult to offer it RT @michellemalkinhttp://t.co/NJuRZeUI

— Keith Olbermann (@KeithOlbermann) September 28, 2012

— Keith Olbermann (@KeithOlbermann) September 28, 2012

So, so mockworthy …

@michellemalkin It only proves how deeply gullible the Left is. Which is why they fell for Obama. @keitholbermann @anamariecox

@KeithOlbermann for someone you claim is insignificant you seem to spend a lot of time tweeting about her

Thank goodness the MSM is well-stocked with grownups like those three. Otherwise, we might be in real trouble.
